Each year, a group of alumni volunteers from the nonprofit UAF Alumni Association heads to Juneau to advocate for UAF and higher education in Alaska. No state or university money is used for this nonpartisan effort, called UAF Impact.
This site provides up-to-date information on legislation, UA's budget request, bills affecting the university, important dates for committee hearings and other helpful resources. You'll also find briefing sheets on UA priorities, Juneau updates and the SupportUA Listserve.
The purpose of the UAF Advocacy Committee is to advocate, support, enhance, facilitate, prosper, collaborate, and showcase the value and impact of the University of Alaska Fairbanks to the local community, the State of Alaska, and the nation. To conduct outreach in areas deemed important by the Chancellor to elected and appointed officials, business representatives, civic and community leaders, the media, and the general public.
